While we are finding out more and more uses for CBD , it is commonly and consistently recognized as a powerful pain reliever and anti-inflammatory. When applied topically, it interacts with local endocannabinoid receptors that regulate pain, inflammation, joint fluid, and temperature. While there are a multitude of CBD products available online, it is important to realize that some are of much higher quality and craft than others, which brings me to Frogsong Farm’s Rubbit CBD Salve. Frogsong Farm is a ten-acre craft hemp farm in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. The farm was originally purchased in 2011 with a vision for sustainable land stewardship. Then, Frogsong Farm LLC was formed in 2016 and licensed to start growing industrial hemp on January 1, 2017. Becca Recker, Frogsong’s Sales and Marketing Manager, explained, “The company’s passion for hemp farming was born out of two goals: improving the health of the land, and making a meaningful difference in people's lives. Growing hemp and producing high end CBD products allows us to achieve both of these goals.” Packaging: The packaging for Frogsong Farm’s Rubbit CBD Salve is simple, sealed, and with clear labeling and classy branding. While some of today’s CBD products you may see on the shelves seem like they should be living in an upscale makeup store, these products are approachable and friendly, and are ready to do the trick! The salve is in a small tub with easy opening, closing, and storage. New Rubbit products will be packaged in glass jars as of October 2018 for better recyclability. Scent: Again, much like the packaging, the scent of Frogsong CBD products is not fancy or frilly, but smells like the earth and the plant that they were made from. The salve has a nice consistency and is dark green in color. Effects: Frogsong Farm's Rubbit CBD salve is designed to deliver concentrated CBD directly to your aches and pains. Rubbit 250 is effective for most types of pain, including arthritis, muscle soreness, "bad" joints, neuropathy, sciatica, headaches, and menstrual cramps to name a few. Rubbit 500 has twice as much CBD per ounce, and is designed for those with chronic, stubborn pain or lower sensitivity to other pain relief methods. I found the effects of this salve to be right in line with these intentions, and found it very helpful and healing for my sore muscles and joints. Frogsong Farm products can be purchased locally at farmers markets and retailers, but the most convenient way to buy Frogsong Farm products is from the web store . They offer free shipping to all fifty states and a satisfaction guarantee. The company also offers CBD Tincture Drops, and their Body Balm Aloe Gel is set to launch later this winter.
